Danny Webber reckons new Leeds boss Neil Warnock is the man to put the club's faltering promotion push back on track.

The 30-year-old striker answered the distress call from his former boss and joined the Yorkshire club on a short-term deal until the end of the season.

A run of poor results and the threat of another season in the Championship cost Simon Grayson his job and left the door open for Warnock, who was sacked by QPR in January.

And Webber is confident the pair can produce some of the old magic that fired Sheffield United into the top-flight in 2006 for Leeds.

Important

"I've had some good parts of my career under him," the 30-year-old told the club's official website.

"He knows how to get the best out of players, he knows how to motivate people and hopefully he can do that with everyone here.

"He looks after you and he'll back you. That's important when you're playing.

"It's within touching distance where we are at the moment and it's case of a good run between now and May and you never know where you might end up."
